Welcome to the 36th episode of the Living Healthy podcast, presented by LA Fitness. We’re back and we’re kicking off the new year with a host of fresh new topics!
When we think about our nutrition plan, we often focus on what we eat. What we drink is just as important! Today we’re talking about everything from your daily water intake to what you drink before and after your workout. We even get into some myth busting during “Brittany’s Mythical Moment.”
Is cow’s milk still a necessary staple? Are recovery drinks actually doing anything for you? What is kombucha and what does it taste like? Tune in now to soak up all the good info!
This podcast should not replace any exercise program or restrictions, any dietary supplements or restrictions, or any other medical recommendations from your primary care physician. Before starting any exercise program or diet, make sure it is approved by your doctor.
